Role Description

Applications for Independent Board Members at Belfast City Centre Management

About Belfast City Centre Management Company Ltd.

BCCM is the organisation behind improving business life, public spaces and the safety of Belfast city centre. Established in 2000 as a partnership between the public and private sectors, it has historically been funded by Belfast City Council, the Department for Communities and the private sector.

The organisation has since changed and has recently undergone a strategic review of its operations resulting in a move towards a more commercial model and new governance structure.

This structural change will see BCCM change its Board structure from a representative Board to a refreshed Board structure to reflect a more commercial approach to its delivery. The new commercially focused Board will comprise of a group of independent strategic experts committed to taking the organisation forward by identifying new opportunities and projects.

The company will also convene a new City Strategic Forum, ensuring that the skills, insight and expertise of the outgoing Board members, alongside other strategic partners, will continue to influence and encourage strategic decisions for the benefit of the city.
